-up to a conversation virginia and i had with mark. i want to refer you all to his amazing website. it's full of very important resources on this case. and the issues that concern mumia. the question that we gravitated towards this morning that i would like to put into this room is of contextualizing the struggle for mumia's rights in a post-9/11 climate of the politics of fear and in what way the struggle has met new challenges. and how we think of meeting those particular ones. if you want to reflect on some of those aspects. >> well, i think in many wades, though, it's both 9/11 but also in the age of obama. i think that 9/11 took place during the age of reagan. it was a very, very different moment. well, it was the age of reagan but bush was a representative. actually, there's elements of carter and clinton that were elements of the age of reagan in terms of punitive policies when it comes to prison, in terms of eliminating and welfare and pushing persons oftentimes that let their entree into the industrial complex. it was the clinton administration decision that helped facilit

virginia and new jersey and massachusetts, more democrats realize they were something profound going on here. this isn't a small number of folks. this isn't astroturf. this is genuine grassroots anger. america is a center-right nation but there is a faustian bargain some republicans are making by trying to benefit politically from people who pump up hagan hyperpartisanship. on the pragmatic level extremists are their own worst enemy. they overreach them provoke a broad-based backlash. bad news. but there is a deeper element of concern as well, because there is a cost. there is a cost to all of this incitement. when dick armey, former house majority leader who has been a promoter of the tea party movement is quoted at one major rally saying nearly every important office in washington d.c. today is occupied by someone with an aggressive dislike for heritage, our freedom, our history and our constitution. when you stir that up, when you are stirring up hate and fear in the service of hyperpartisanship you are playing with forces that can easily get out of control. southern-- 300%

hand you're not. but my guess is that the senator from virginia, the senator from connecticut might drop that in about five minutes. not that the senator from virginia is actually add -- advocating. he's trying to solve something else. that's something in about five minutes could be solved. so i do think that what senator warner has said is true. that is that the rhetoric around this, an issue that could be dealt with literally in about five minutes, is probably overheated. and the fact is that what we need to do is figure out a way to focus on this issue in an intelligent way. i think that as the senator from virginia mentioned, people on both extremes want to make sure that if a large institution in this company fails, it's just like the small institutions in this country. they go out of business. i think we're united on that. are there some flaws that exist? yes. did the bill get a little sideways at the end? yes. but do people understand the way we can deal with this in an intelligent, thoughtful way and fix that? yes. i wonder if the senator from virginia would wish to not mayb

mines myself, these reports out of west virginia and kentucky are very troubling. mining is a very dangerous occupation. i know that personally as a result of my dad having been blasted, as we called it, and reflecting back on my childhood friend, stan hudgins, whose father was working in the blossom with my dad and a rock dropped on his head and killed him, and my dad brought him out of the mine. so these reports out of the coal mines are really troubling. i agree with my distinguished friend that we have to make sure that we act but not do anything that's harmful to the industry, because it's a very important industry. mining is the number-two industry in nevada. it's not coal mining. a lot of mining now in nevada is open pit. not all of it is. we have underground mining taofplt it's the same with coal mining. hard rock business is open pit mining, but they have a significant amount of underground mining also. i look forward to working with my friend, the the republican leader, and all those who want to make mining safer and protect this important industry. i ask unanimous consen

spent much of the last week at a mine disaster in a rural part of west virginia. amongst all of the horrible things that come out after experience like that, one of the most disturbing was the fact that not one person there, the rescue people trying to get inside mine officials, miners families, most importantly, trying to call people in detroit or akron or wherever they might be, couldn't do that. there is no cell phone service in that part of the state. and it is not the most rural part of the state. that made me angry. putting ideas on paper is just not enough. just seeking comment on a slew of issues is not enough. to me, 10 years after 9/11, it is action that counts. let me tell you why. in west virginia, one in five households lack access to broadband service. as this plan notes,ly 71% of the state's population has access to 3g wireless service. every day that goes by, communities without broadband in west virginia and every state in the country, and no state doesn't have remote, rural parts to it, risks falling father behind. in this new century, broadband is promise of econo
